Carbon fiber is known as the strongest and most light-weighted material on the planet today. Engineers and designers love it, because it's 5 times stronger than steel and twice as stiff, yet weighs about two-thirds less. Carbon fiber is a material consisting of very thin filaments of carbon atoms - even thinner than hair. When bound together with plastic polymer resin by either heat, pressure or vacuum a strong and lightweight material is formed.
Today Carbon Fiber is mostly used in motorsport, satellites, oil and gas industry, military and aerospace where the strong and light-weighted material is required. Carbon Fiber is known to be the next generation luxury material, with a modern and high-tech look. The material makes it an excellent choice for our everyday items like our cars. Most car components are made of metal and by replacing this with carbon fiber the weight can be reduced as much as 60%. Lower weight reduce friction, increases speed, reduce the car's fuel consumption, which is good for both the environment and the consumer.
Carbon fiber has been used to build Formula One, sport cars like Pagani, yachts and is also being used with larger luxury brands within fashion such as Gucci and Chanel.
Carbon Fiber's unique capabilities and beautiful looks makes it a perfect material for luxury lifestyle products and accessories.
